    What's meant by "treason tags"? Seems like something to do with the logo on older bags?

    Thanks...

    David, it's actually the care label, not the logo label, that's being referred to: a bit of cheeky French text that was added to the care label inside some bags during the aughts*. Snopes actually has some info: https://www.snopes.com/business/hidden/tombihn.asp .

    (*Man, "aughts" is awkward to say.)

        I wish Tom would bring them back. Maybe with an additional text in Russian?

          I hadn’t heard of this before. Very interesting.

            This is one of the few times when I'm annoyed with TB. I'm not sure why some companies feel the need to get involved in politics. Maybe it is my respect for the office but TB should do what they do best - make the best bags.
            When in trouble, obfuscate.
